Lemon curd is one of my favourite things to use in cakes and desserts- so lemony and refreshing, it is very easy to make at home. You can also use mango, grapefruit or lime instead of lemon. Yum!
Ingredients (for one large jar):
- 2 eggs
- 2 egg yolks (additional)
- 160g caster sugar
- 80g unsalted butter
- juice and zest of 2 lemons
Lightly beat the eggs, egg yolks and sugar in a small saucepan, then put on a low heat.
Add the butter, lemon juice and zest and continue cooking (stir often) until the mixture has thickened and all ingredients are well combined.
Keep in a sterilised jar in the fridge.
